This pop ballad was made famous by Elvis Presley in the early 1960s and the British reggae band UB40 in the 1990s. This song is beautiful on the harp, and is often requested for mid-ceremony music (such as the sand ceremony or lighting of the unity candle) or family seating before the ceremony. I also often play it for receptions, parties, and rehearsal dinners.
The harp, violin, & cello trio version was recorded live at a wedding.
This piece can be played on pedal harp or lever harp.
Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you?
Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand,
Take my whole life, too
For I can't help falling in love with you
